    Can't hide apps on note 3

      On the note 2, I could easily hide apps that were seldom used and cluttering up the app tray. That option is not available on the note 3. How can I get rid of the clutter without disabling or uninstalling?

          Hi Jamanem,


          Looks like Hiding apps like in the Note 2 is not possible.


          Although you may be unable to uninstall some preloaded apps, you may be able to hide and disable them. This causes them to hide from the Apps menu and not perform updates.


          To hide or disable preloaded apps, follow these steps:


          1. From any Home screen, tap the Menu key.
          2. Tap Settings.
          3. Tap the General tab.
          4. Tap Application manager.
          5. If necessary, swipe left or right to the appropriate screen:

            • Downloaded
            • SD card
            • Running
            • All

          6. Tap the desired application.
            Note: If desired, tap the Menu key and then tap Sort by name or Sort by size to change how the apps are listed.
          7. Tap Disable and then tap OK. The app is now listed at the bottom of the list (not alphabetical order).

            Thanks Drew. I was already aware of how to do this. It's a shame that you can't simply hide apps anymore. A good example is apps that are usually not launched directly, but by other apps instead. There is no reason to have them in the app tray and disabling them would render them useless.
